T~~he white H~ouse.
SmR:This is a report of the Electrical Contracting Chapter of tee
Code of Fair Competition for the Construction Indlustry, w~hichi ass
approved by y~oul on January 31, 19341, and which is described asi
Chapter I.
This Cha~pter is a revision after public hearings conducted in
Washington on September 7th and 8th 1933, and January 22, Janu-
ary 31, February 12, February~ 26, and Miarch 12, 1934. Additional
testimony me.y be found in the Tr~anscript of Hearing on the Con~-
struction Industry Code which was held in Washington on November
20, 1933, in Volume 3, pages 75 to 82 inclusive, and pages 173 to 219
inclusive. These hearings were held in accordance wilth t~he provi-
sions of the National Industrial Recovery Act, and thiis Chapt~er
was thereafter revised and re-submit.ted.


The Electric~al Contr~actinig Division is an imlpor~tant branch of the
Construction Industry, both in original construction and also in re-
tazhng,~;P seven g and mamntairung existing installations. Their
work is described mlore fully by thie definitions contained in Article I
of this Cia pter.

The hours set forth in Chapter I of the Code o~f Fair Competi-
tion for the Construction Industry, approved by you on January 31,
19341, are applicable to this Chapter. In addition to the miinimumi
wage set fourth in Chapter I of t~he. Construction Code, a niinimumi
wage rate of seventyt~-five (75#) per hour has been sert fourth for skilled
labor in the Electrical Contracting Division.
The International Brotherh~oo d of Electrical W\orkers h~as a total
mnember~ship, according to statements made by that organization, of
150,000 electricians. Of these, 94,000 are paid-up members. Fromt
this number must be subtracted 31,000 normally engaged in repair,
service and maintenance, a classification not included in the. defini-
tions of this C~hapter.
The remaining electricians, w~ho will operate under the pr~ovisions
of this Codee, number 63,000.
Since the employers, as included in the definitions of this Chapter,
employed approximately 25,000 electricians, it may be seen that pracl
tically all of these employees are represented by the International
Brotherhood of Electrical W'orkers and should be considered as such
in the determination of the skilled rate agreement.


This Industry gave direct employment in 1930 to 73,980 workers.
Its volume of business in that year was $457,000 000. It is reason-
able to suppose that with the prohibition of unfair trade practices
and the establishment of uniform rates of pay and hours of work,
better conditions will prevail in this Industry and that employers,
employees and the public will be benefitted.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Electri-
cal Contracting Chapter of the Code of Fair Competition for the
Construction Industry, as supplemented by the addition thereto of
said Electrical Contractinga Chapter, hlaving found as herein set forth
and on the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I: find that:
(a) Said Electrical Contracting Chapter and said Code of Fair
Competition for the Construction Industry as supplemented by the
addition thereto of said Electrical Contracting -Chapter, are well
designed to promote t~he policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act, including removal of obstructions
to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to
diminish the amount thereof and will provide for thle general welfare
by promoting the organization of industry for t.he purpose of coop-
erative action among the trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate government
sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, byr promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment,
by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
i nduast ry.
(b)Sa~d lecricl ontactngCh~apter and the Code of Fair
Competitio foecr the Construction Industry, as supplemented by the
addition thereto of said Electrical Contracting Chapter, as approved
comply in all respects with the pertinent provisions of said Title o2
said A~ct, including without limitation subsection (a) of Section 3,
subsection (a) of Section 7, and subsection (b) of Section 10 there-
of ; and that the, applicant association is an industrial association
truly representative of the aforesaid Industry; and that said asso-
ciation imposes no inequitable restrictions on admission to member-

(hic) ad ~ Electricall Contracting Chapter and the Code of Fairerin
Competition for t~he Const~ruction Industry, as supplemented by the
addition thereto of said Electrical Contracting Chapter, are not
designed to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) Said Electrical Contracting Chapter and the Code of Fiair
Competition for the Construction Industry, as supplemented by the
addition thereto of said Electrical Contracting Chapter, are not
designed to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and
will not operate to discriminate against them.

(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economiic process have
not been depriv-ed of the right to be heard prior to approval by said
Electrical C~ontractinga Chapter and of saidl Code, as supplemented
by the addition thereto of this Electrical Conitractingr Chaupter
For these reasons, therefore, I recommend appr~oval of said Elee-
trical Contracting Chapter and said Ciode, as supplemented by the
addition thereto of said Electrical Contracting Chapter thereof.
